It seems that nowadays when our friends all get together,
All we ever talk about is who’s under the weather.
One friend just got well, while two more are feeling sickly.
One is out of surgery…another goes in quickly.
Someone took a fall. Did they break a hip or leg?
Or did they hit their head and now sport a big goose egg?
One had a bad reaction to the medication.
A couple got food poisoning while they were on vacation.
With all the body parts we’ve had removed and/or replaced,
It’s a wonder we’re still standing. Just think of all we’ve faced.
We see doctor after doctor, and drive to and from each day.
And morning, noon and night, we all take time to pray…
That most of our health issues are satisfactorily resolved,
Before all of our children start getting too involved.
If health concerns have now become a constant in our life,
and some of us continue to go under the ol’ knife.
We’ll take care of each other, because we’re all dear friends,
And because we’re in His hands, our fear soon ends.
So live life to the fullest. Eat dessert before your meal.
Go ahead! Buy green bananas! Just don’t slip on a banana peel.
Keep a song in your heart and a smile on your face,
And a friend’s number in your pocket…just in case!
